May it be for the here or the elsewhere, when one photographs in the form of documentary, several steps are to be undertaken, which is what this Workshop will scrutinise and analyse in depth. From the very first location spotting to a true understanding of what is at stake on the field; from the writing of the synopsis to the elaboration of a personal method of working; from the shooting to the choice of the medium of diffusion (press, exhibition, book, webâŠ); each of these stages are fundamental to be at the heart of oneâs own true photography.
In parallel with a theoretical approach, based on several sessions of portfolio reviews of his own work but also of the participantâs, Cedric Gerbehaye will suggest a few practical exercises in which the participant will have to immerse himself in a location, in order to develop a personal and daring photographic approach.
Cedric Gerbehaye was born in Belgium in 1977. He trained as a journalist to then specialize in photography as another way of writing the news.
Between 2002 and 2006, he produces many stories in Israel and Palestine, for which he will be awarded the Photographie Ouverte Award from the Charleroi Museum of Photography.
One year later, his story âGaza: summer rainâ is acclaimed as one of the strongest piece, during the Bayeux-Calvados Festival of War Photographers.
From 2007 onwards, Cedric Gerbehaye regularly travels to the Democratic Republic of Congo and brings back a stunning reportage on the state of a country: âCongo in Limboâ which will later be published in the form of a book and shown in many exhibitions amongst which the World Press Photo, the Olivier Rebbot Award and the Overseas Press Club of America.
Later on, he focuses his work on South-Sudan, and his reportage âLand of Cushâ is awarded the 2012 Roger Pic SCAM prize. This same year, Cedric first chapter of a new series on Belgium is being exhibited at Photoreporter Festival of Saint-Brieuc. And finally, he is invited as a resident by the 2013 ImageSinguliĂšre Festival in SĂšte.
